Car crashes, hangs over edge of parking garage

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) — A crash on the top of floor of a Boston area parking garage on Saturday left a car hanging precariously off the edge and injured at least one, according to firefighters.

The Cambridge Fire Department in a tweet at about 2:15 p.m. said it was conducting a technical rescue at the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority’s Alewife garage.

The fire department posted a photo of a car with heavy front end damage hanging over the edge of the garage that has nearly 2,500 parking spaces.

“MBTA Alewife station will remain CLOSED pending structural & safety evaluation,” the fire department tweeted along with a photo of glass and debris covering the floor of what is normally a busy concourse.

The MBTA tweeted that the station is temporarily closed as crews assess the damage.

Shuttle buses were replacing Red Line service between Davis and Alewife stations.
